Careers Fair 2016

Careers Fair 2016

A big thank you to all of the exhibitors who attended our careers fair on 16th March. This annual event allows us to support students with access to careers advice and guidance from employers, apprenticeship providers, colleges, universities and voluntary service providers.

This year we were at full capacity with 40 exhibitors in our Sports Hall. We were especially pleased to welcome the following employers who were able to talk about apprenticeship and training opportunities in the local area; Barclays Bank, Unilever, O2 Telefonica, Lloyds Bank, Kaplan, TTE, Jarvis Training and MSB Solicitors.

For students interested in a uniformed service career, representatives from the Army, RAF, Merseyside Police and the Royal Navy were on hand to answer any questions. In addition, a full range of universities and colleges were available for students interested in an academic pathway after St Mary’s.

Many students will be returning to St Mary’s after Yr11 and Mr Cotgrave / Mrs Jones were able to provide information on entry requirements and the combination of courses available.
Students had prepared a list of questions that would help them investigate a range of possible career choices. Parents were also invited to inform them and support their children when making career choices.

The feedback from students, parents and exhibitors was excellent and we look forward to repeating this event next year.
